Monday featured an emotional return from Hines Ward and his partner Kym Johnson, who suffered a neck injury in an agonizing fall during rehearsals last week. But the pro dancer proved her mettle Monday night when she and Ward earned a perfect score for their tango. They also earned a perfect 30 for their second dance.
Unstoppable couple Mark Ballas and Cheslea Kane won 15 bonus points from the night's winner-take-all cha-cha, giving them the highest total of the night with a 73. Is that enough to ensure them a ticket to the finale?
Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovsky won praise from the judges for their waltz technique, taking home a third-place score of 54 out of 60.
Ralph Macchio, who was still sore from his knee injury, didn't entirely thrill judges with his Argentine tango, yet still managed to accumulate a 48 out of 60 points with partner Karina Smirnoff.
Last week a strong contender, Romeo, was sent home while Macchio was saved. Can he make it another week? Tell us below who will be cut just shy of the season 12 finale:
